My name is Meenal. My name is Kris. We OM.
Meenal: We were married at a young age. Didn’t know anything about sex, probably even less about intimacy. For the last 10 years of our now 28 year marriage, I have been seeking out courses aligned with what I had been learning through yoga, in search for the “more”. Who knew there was such a thing as “conscious relationship”? While these courses radically improved our communication, our intimacy, our trust in each other, the sex part still hadn’t ironed itself out, in part due to sexual assaults that occurred over 35 years ago.
Kris: I used to think that harmony was connection and I unconsciously avoided my anger and hers. This had resulted in sapping the heat and passion from our sex. A few months after we started OMing, I noticed that I was more willing to stand my ground when we disagreed, allowing her to feel me more fully. Our continuing OM practice has increased my attention to allow me to see when I withhold myself and helped me consciously choose to show up by expressing my anger and inviting hers when it arises…and as a result, more heat and electricity is showing up in our sex.
Meenal: Via OM, we have learned how to feel the electricity between us in all of its forms, rather than demanding that it show up in a nice neat package called Climax. We can feel it as a hum when we sit next to each other. We can feel it as the heart racing anticipation of saying the really hard thing that needs to be said, followed by the resonant peal of truth as the space between us clears. And yes, the steamy, heat-generating, breath-hitching burst of sexual desire Twenty-eight years …and it is only getting better!
